Greenlawn Southwest celebrates Flag Day with a national flag retirement ceremony on Monday.
According to a news release from Greenlawn Funeral Homes, the event will take place at 10 am at the Greenlawn Memorial Park.

According to the news release, the event will be attended by Mayor Karen Goh, who will take a commemorative flight with the BT-13 Navy trainer, which pilot Todd Schultz flew with the USAAF of World War II.
Greenlawn Southwest is located in 2739 Panama Lane. Families can bring the flag to the funeral home until the morning of the event.
This is the third year that Greenlawn will hold the ceremony. According to the funeral home, about 1,400 flags retired last year.
